Game Recap – Union 42 Battle Ground 6

Written by Bryan Levesque on October 13, 2011

The Union Titans took a while to get going Thursday night at Battle Ground, but once they got on a roll, Battle Ground could not stop them. Titans RB Brandon Bordy-Heim was the star of the game as he ran for 134 yards and 3 rushing touchdowns on just 18 carries. Brody-Heim also caught a screen pass for a 26 yard touchdown from QB Kaben Humphrey-Buttler. Humphrey-Buttler threw for 169 yards and the one touchdown and also ran for a 6 yard touchdown. The most electric play of the night however goes to Union’s A.J. Anderson. Anderson in only his 2nd game of the season returned a punt 59 yards for a touchdown, making just about every Tigers defender miss him along the way. The Tigers got on the board in the 4th quarter when RB Kevin Haynes punched in a 1 yard run after catching a 30 yard pass from QB Ian Humphrey the play before.

Union improves their record to 6-1 on the season and 2-0 in league play with the win. The Titans will host Evergreen (0-6 0-1) Friday at McKenzie Stadium, 8:00 p.m. Battle Ground falls to 4-3 on the season and 1-2 in league play with the loss. The Tigers will travel to Heritage (1-5 0-2) Friday at McKenzie Stadium, 5:00 p.m.

    I’m not praising union, but they look much better, not on skyview’s level at all but from heritage to this weeks game is like night and day! They seemed to have improved a lot.

    couldnt disagree with you more BGK

    42-6 may seem impressive, but they looked like they had zero team speed.

    i saw the Dline get pushed around, o line not holding blocks, and RBs running SOFT. union players need to step it up if they want to return to the glory days

    If Union can beat Heritage 42-6 going soft, I think that is comparable to Skyview’s win going “hard”.

    You can talk about “Hard” games or “Soft” games or whatever. But Skyview owned the second half of the game against Camas. And my money is on a similar outcome with a higher score if the storm keeps the tempo up. Union looks good as always but they are going to need every ounce of their conditioning to hang on in the second half. With Brody Heim, Rego and company I expect the Titans will put up more points than Camas did.
    Perhaps 38-21 in Skyview’s favor.

    @ notsomuch, are you kidding me? I saw running backs run through arm tackles and falling forward, forced fumbles, and hard hits in that video, and out running defensive players. What are you talking about no game speed and soft? I think a team who can score 2 rushing touchdowns from 25, and 26 yards out are sustaining their blocks and running fast down field, and over a 50 yard punt return? wow, so I think you comment is a compliment on the fact they are played soft and still able to do all this. Can’t wait to see them play hard hahaha.

Got something to say?
